New On View | What to see at Fort Works Art
Fort Works Art is excited to present a group exhibition featuring a special selection of over 75 paintings and sculptures. We have packed the house with works by artists Jessica McClendon, Austin Fields, Jay Wilkinson, Hillary Dohoney, Adam Fung, Reisha Perlmutter, Dan Lam, Eric Inkala, Cary Meiners, Marshall Harris, Crystal Wagner, Steve Gall, Erika Duque, Kate Stipp, Greg Bahr, Andre Veloux, Arthur Brouthers, Byrd Williams, and Lisa Krannichfeld.
Each screen print piece is a meticulously created visualization of the artist’s everyday routine. Every task in life creates a path, and Bahr’s work explores the patterns left by seemingly mundane journeys and aims to create something beautiful and meaningful out of them. You will see intricate lines that trace the rounds he makes while taking his kids to school every morning, heading to work, and back again. These many repetitive movements, often overlooked in the scope of one’s life, are what Bahr layers to create imperfect and intwining patterns in an effort to elevate their banal nature. Greg Bahr is an artist living and working in Fort Worth, Texas. He received his BFA from Texas Christian University with an emphasis in painting. He draws inspiration from everyday, seemingly mundane tasks. He is also heavily inspired by his work at The Amon Carter Museum, where he has worked as a preparator for over 15 years
Fields received her BFA at UTA in glassblowing. Working freely and
quickly she bends and forms orbs in a very organic and sensual way.
Drawing from her love of the figure, she creates works that undulate
with the naturally occurring curves of the female form. She exhibits her
often seen “mirrored orbs,” which are clear blown glass that she later
mirrorizes. This reflection allows the viewer to see themselves in the
work. Their faces and bodies, contorted to the curves of the sculptures,
offer a physical invitation to exist within the work. The femininity of
Fields work is undeniable. The works are strong, yet fragile and they
finish off to a smooth perfection.
artist Andre Veloux, resides in Princeton, NJ. All of the works are
made with commercially available Lego bricks. Lego, in all its various
forms, is at the same time limiting as well as limitless in its
possibilities. The color palette is limited yet consistent, and the
basic “pixel” size is also fixed. Yet at the same time, it is a hard,
durable, tactile and lightweight material; it can be reused, replaced
and altered at will, and provides a myriad of different possibilities
due to the different available shaped bricks, tiles and plates, with the
exciting opportunity to create the 3-dimensional and textural aspects
of the art.
